Re: Satellite Battery icon reads "no battery detected"

First, try a proper system reset. Power off the laptop, unplug the AC from the unit, remove the battery, press and hold down the power button for 30 seconds, replace the battery and AC, power on, when you see the Toshiba logo, press the 'F2' key to enter the BIOS Setup, in setup press 'F9' to load setup defaults, press 'F10' to save and exit, and then to boot into Windows.

 

Then, try resetting the power plans to the default. Enter this at an elevated command prompt.

 

   powercfg -restoredefaultschemes

 

 

If you need to post back here, we need your full model number, like Satellite L740-ST6N01, and the Windows version you're running like Windows 7 64bit.

 

Please let us know what happens. Good luck.

This worked for me!  

The first thing you recommended: 

"First, try a proper system reset. Power off the laptop, unplug the AC from the unit, remove the battery, press and hold down the power button for 30 seconds, replace the battery and AC, power on, when you see the Toshiba logo, press the 'F2' key to enter the BIOS Setup, in setup press 'F9' to load setup defaults, press 'F10' to save and exit, and then to boot into Windows.
 

I had same message "no battery detected". When i unplugged the power cord, my computer still worked, but said "unknown remaining." I did what you suggested several hours ago and it's working fine ever since.  (I didn't have to do the elevated command prompt...)

thank you!!!!!

 

Toshiba Satellite L755-S5153.

Re: Satellite Battery icon reads "no battery detected"

Hi - I now have this problem on a Portege Z830 (ultrabook).  To remove the battery to do a hard reset I have to open the entire computer.  Is it necessary to remove the battery?

Re: Satellite Battery icon reads "no battery detected"

I read and tried miker643's recommended "fix" to this but to no avail.  On my Satellite U505-S2970 I just replaced the two 2GB RAM modules with two 4GB RAM modules (after turning power off, disconnecting power and removing battery).  The system started up fine after I replaced the battery and plugged the power in, but the battery light (on the front) never came on and I got the dreaded "no battery detected" message on the system tray icon.

 

After looking up the problem on this forum, I tried it - and even did the DOS commend - in the DOS window, but nothing helped.

 

Suggestions?

Thanks.
